Hiking @ Inwood Hill Park and Learn Foraging with the "Wildman"

* RSVP 'yes' if you are CERTAIN you can join us, otherwise DO NOTHING. *

IMPORTANT:  This is a 4 hour hiking and forging tour @ Inwood Hill Park.  All initial sign ups will be on wait list.  Call (914)[masked] and make a reservation with the tour.  Either leave a message in the comments section or email me afterwards and I will move you to RSVP 'yes'.

PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES AND WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING TO THE EVENT HERE BEFORE MAKING YOUR RESERVATIONS.  Suggested Donations for the tour is $20 but nobody is ever turned away for lack of funds.  You DO need to confirm your reservations the evening before the tour starts.

We will be exploring Inwood Hill Park for 4 hours with Steve Brill, learning about foraging and harvesting along the way.  Here's the schedule of events.

"Wildman" Steve Brill, an environmental educator, started his weekend public wild food & ecology tours throughout greater NY, the northeast, and other regions in 1982.  All his tours and presentations feature a great diversity and abundance of common, renewable, seasonal edible and medicinal wild plants or mushrooms.

Inwood Hill Park is a city-owned and maintained public park in Inwood, Upper Manhattan, New York City, operated by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. It stretches along the Hudson River from Dyckman Street to the northern tip of the island. Inwood Hill Park's densely folded, glacially scoured topography contains the largest remaining forest land on Manhattan Island. Unlike other Manhattan parks, Inwood Hill Park is largely natural (non-landscaped)

How to get there:  By subway, take A train to Dyckeman St. (200 St.). Cross Broadway and enter the playground.  (Please note the playground is NOT in Inwood Park.)

    It's a really good tour jam packed with information. I might consider offering this event again in the future.

      I guess it's too late now, but more people might be able to make it if it was in April?

      It's going to be in a different place by then. If I find the tour enjoyable this Saturday, I might offer the event again in the future.
